Good morning!

It’s another light wind start in the Gorge today, and that means it’s a good morning for … fishing. That’s right. If you’ve got a fishing license, you have my permission to skip out today and go after some fish.

The wind won’t pick up until mid morning today when a cold front pushes into Oregon. By early-afternoon, the wind will pick up into the 23-26 range. We’ll see the wind start at Stevenson and then move eastward, blowing briefly in Hood River before pushing out to Arlington.

Tomorrow looks very light, as low pressure sits off the Oregon Coast and keeps gradients from developing across the Cascades.

There’s not a lot going on with wind, but there is a lot going on this week. If you’ve been waiting for Monday Tai Chi, you’ll have to wait until next Monday, but if you’re a gal and you’ve been waiting for Big Winds Ladies’ Stand up paddle night, with free demos and lessons, that starts tomorrow night at the Event Site.

Coming up next weekend, it’s National Trails day, with a big work party at Buck Creek. It’s also the weekend of the White Salmon River Fest, with $5 kayak races and a salmon bake. And Sunday of next weekend is’s paddlefest at the Hood River Waterfront Park to benefit first descents, a program supporting young adults with cancer. Go to their website and check it out and sign up!

Sorry about the lack of wind. Have a great day today!
